  • No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
  • No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
  • Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making

Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

Re: Alternative Treatment for Many Types of Cancers

Speaking of alternative cancer treatments - One man's up date today on this site (10-29-19) spoke of going to China for a "cure" for his P.C. with success - at least to date. Some sort of herbal mix injected in to the prostate is the basis for his treatment.

One hears of these new treatments now and then and seemingly good results with little side effects. I wonder if anyone is looking into these treatment results - like the American Cancer Society for instance - to see if they are something that should be seriously considered over what we are stuck with here in the United States for treatment. Is our system so closed minded that they really don't want to find a better way? I don't know if these unconventional treatments work or not but I admire those who have the courage and ability to give them a try instead of settling for what our choices are here. That "magic pill" cure could be out there if we would just swallow our pride and admit that we here in this great country may not have all the answers and listen for alternatives that just might work. It is not uncommon for medical advances to come from outside this country, so for our own well being, more attention should be paid to other possibilities. As said before and reluctantly felt by many - is greed and profit guiding our medical industry over patient welfare? Jon.
